Old Government House
Parramatta Park, Pitt Street entrance.
Old Government House is the oldest surviving public building in Australia. Jointly World Heritage listed with Parramatta Park, it is significant for the administrative role it played during the convict era. It was also the ‘country residence’ of the first ten Governors of New South Wales. Today, this elegant Georgian house sits in the heart of Parramatta Park and is open to the public as a museum.
Old Government House is managed by the National Trust of Australia (NSW).
Old Government House is open for guided tours Tuesday to Sunday and most public holidays, 10am-4pm. It is closed on Mondays, Good Friday, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
